Claims of an epidemic of cancer from the 
Chernobyl accident have not been validated. There 
was no apparent major effects of widespread 
public exposure to ionizing radiation from the 
Chernobyl accident except for thyroid disease 
associated with very high acute radiation doses 
from short-lived 131I in milk. See World Health 
Organizion (WHO), Health Effects of the Chernobyl 
Accident and Special Health Care Programmes, 
Geneva, Switzerland: World Health Organization 
2006, and also Z. Jaworowski,Observations on the 
Chernobyl Disaster and LNT. Dose Response 8: 148–171; 2010.
